Global News published this video item, entitled “Trudeau increases Canada’s 2030 emissions target to 40-45%” – below is their description.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Thursday that Canada will aim to cut its emissions of greenhouse gases by 40-45 per cent by 2030, up from the current target of 30 per cent.
Trudeau unveiled the new targets during a virtual address to world leaders, convened by U.S. President Joe Biden, for a summit on fighting climate change.
“We will continually strengthen our plan and take even more actions on our journey to net zero by 2050,” Trudeau said.
Ahead of the summit, seven environmental groups released a report with modelling that says to limit global warming to 1.5 C degrees compared to pre-industrial levels, Canada should double the 30 per cent commitment it signed in the Paris Agreement, according to the report.
The Liberals say existing measures can lower Canada’s emissions by 36 per cent for 2030, and help it achieve net-zero by mid-century.
